Golden Globes 2017: Highlights

Jimmy Fallon Losing the Room

The momentum was on the “Tonight Show” host’s side — for all of five minutes. The pre-recorded introduction, which had Fallon belting his own version of a “La La Land” song, kicked off the evening on a high note. But the problem was, Fallon lost the room as soon as he went live and not just because his teleprompter failed.

Presiding over the first major Hollywood gathering since Donald Trump’s election as president, Fallon’s political jokes were too soft.

The laughter during the monologue was more muted than it had been during the Tina Fey and Amy Poehler  or Ricky Gervaise years.

Meryl Streep’s speech
The most electrically charged moment of the night came courtesy of Meryl Streep. As the montage of all her best performances played, the room applauded the loudest during “The Devil Wears Prada.” Then, after an enthusiastic standing ovation, Streep took the stage where she delivered a speech targeted to Trump (although she never mentioned the president-elect by name). As she closed with a quote from her friend Carrie Fisher (“Take your broken heart, make it into art”), everybody in the room was in tears.

Best Presenters

The Golden Globes outshined the Oscars when it came to their presenters.

Brad Pitt made a rare public appearance after his divorce from Angelina Jolie to introduce “Moonlight,” a movie that he produced and ended up winning Best Drama.

Stallone and Carl Weathers staged a surprise “Rocky” reunion.

Amy Schumer and Goldie Hawn had great chemistry — a good sign for their upcoming movie “Snatch,” in which they play mother-daughter.

Kristen Wiig and Steve Carell drew the biggest chuckles of the night, recalling the first time they saw an animated feature with their parents.
